  1. Waiting at an airport is seldom fun even under the best of circumstances, but I have to say that it’s a grand place for people watching. I always find it fascinating watching how people react and interact with each other and their environment — in some cases they could sell tickets! 🙂 Have a great week Monte!

    • I’ve always been a people watcher. Sometimes I laugh and sometimes I scratch my head. I think it’s a good study or peoples character by watching them put their bags in the overhead bins. Would love to video tape it sometime.

      We just finished a 6 flight day, 13 hours. Needles to say my feet are tired. Off to bed and out in the morning but only fly 2 legs. Hope you have a good week also!

  2. I love the simplicity of this shot. It brings back memories of my days as a consultant, when I traveled every week. Ugh. Do you have a favorite airport?

    • I meet people who fly every week for their business. So, if you did traveled for living then you had to learn how to pack efficiently and light. Now you seem to travel for fun. 🙂

  3. At last I can get a seat no thanks to those TSA clowns. The last time I flew out of Albany I think I was singled out. I was alone, 60 years old, a one way ticket to Orlando because I was driving back. I buzzed going through, I had on a Golf shirt shorts, I told them my left knee was artificial and they didn’t care, they also knew I was retired from law enforcement and saw my shield but I was set aside and frisked pretty good. Then when it was time to board I got the last seat in the rear by myself. When I got to Florida and I unpacked, there was paperwork inside saying they went through my luggage.

    • You must look suspicious, Don. Stop squinting your eyes and looking tough. LOL

      We have a pilot in our company with a metal hip and has to be frisked each time he passes through. It’s a hassle. I set it off in Canada last week and went through just as I normally do. Oh well!

  4. The image is wonderful. Airports, I think, are one of the loneliest places on earth. It doesn’t matter if you’re surrounded by hundreds of people at O’hare or Logan or JFK or wherever. It’s still a very lonely, transient place. This image captures that sense perfectly. And the diagonal shadows make it even better.

    • Thanks, Paul. As I fly for a living, I do get to see a lot of these scenes. I have a few where I just sit and wait for people to walk by and press the shutter.

  5. Man, I’ve spent more than an hour waiting in those seats! Airports are the best place for people watching; especially as I marvel at how much stuff one person can tote!

    • As a flight attendant, baggage and PDA’s are my two major pet peeves. I am surprised by how much people want to take with them, no matte how long a trip it may be. One carry-on would work for most people.

      And, those seats are not comfortable at all. Yet, I’ve slept on a few of them. These would be good for that as the do not have arms separating each seat.
